If you're on about using SMTP via using Telnet, you'll need to do the following (usually in this order)

-----

open smtp.server.com 25

HELO telnet
MAIL FROM: <mail@originating.address>
RCPT TO: <mail@destination.address>
DATA
Subject: This is the Subject Title!

Put Email Body Here
.
QUIT

-----

Subject:   is a header. there are many more. The headers and the body need a blank line between them to work.

I dunno what they all do, but some should be self explanatory.
